Injured Nadal ruled out of Games

Olympic champion Rafa Nadal's withdrawal from the London Games
because of injury deprived the tournament of one of its biggest
attractions and left Spain reeling on Thursday.
The gold medal winner in Beijing four years ago has failed to recover
from a knee problem, and also misses out on the honour of carrying his
nation's flag at the opening ceremony.
The Spanish tennis federation (RFET) said Feliciano Lopez would be his
replacement in the singles while the country's Olympic committee (COE)
said a meeting on Friday would decide on a replacement flag bearer for
the July 27th parade.
